It’s About Time

Did this morning come earlier than expected? Or are you late right now because you forgot to reset your clocks last night?

Either way, grab your cameras and reset the clocks in them, too. All digital cameras embed date and time stamps into the metadata and you want to keep them accurate.

This would also be a great time to make sure your camera is running the latest firmware version. If you didn’t install the software that came with the camera, you can usually download it from the manufacturers web site. Once you have it installed, connect your camera (usually by a USB cable, sometimes by an expensive proprietary cable) and check for updates. Some software will also reset your camera’s clock, handy if you have multiple cameras and want to keep them in time sync.
